I heart goes out to the family in your time of sorrow. I remember Ms. Patricia as “Patsy”. I lost contact for many years, until Facebook. She always posted positive and funny things. What a wonderful human being.

I knew Pat as a Dean Bus driver for my Early Childhood Special Ed. students in Lansing schools. She always seemed to be a calm and positive influence on the children. She had a smile for me and remembered my name even when we hadn’t seen each other for years. I will miss her as I’m sure all who met her will.
To her family–God Bless you as you remember her and know that you are in my prayers. Kay Murphy
